This mod adds several new types of leaders, as well as ministers, as country modifiers to the game. It also adds a number of historical admirals and generals.
The leader country modifiers give bonuses according to their type, and that particular leader's skill (skill can range from 1 to 6). The new leader types are:
Artist (increases prestige)
Banker (decreases loan interest, increases the maximum loan modifier and decreases factory costs)
Diplomat (decreases badboy and increases diplomat points)
Natural Scientist (gives bonus to industry research)
Philosopher (increases research points)
Statesman (increases administrative efficiency, increases population consciousness and increases political awareness)
Treasurer (increases tax efficiency)
To recruit each type of leader, use the corresponding decision (for instance: "Recruit Statesman"). Recruiting a leader costs 5 prestige.
After a short while, an event will trigger, giving you a random historical leader of that type that is available to you. If there are no leaders of that type available to you, the decision will be unavailable. Whether a particular leader is available depends on whether you own the correct province, whether that province has pops of the correct culture, and on the date.
Some of your leaders can occupy ministerial positions (Head of State, Head of Government, Armament Minister, Chief of the Army, Foreign Minister and Minister of Security). The bonuses given by a minister depends on their trait respective to that ministerial position. You can only appoint a minister of the same ideology group as your ruling party (so a conservative party will allow you to appoint conservative or reactionary ministers), except for the head of government, which has to be of the same ideology as your ruling party.
When your ruling party changes, if a minister is of an inadequate ideology, you will get a resignation event for him. With heads of state things function differently; rather than be appointed, they become heads of state by event. For republics, the head of state depends on the ideology of the ruling party, while for monarchies the head of state is independent of ideology.
